How To Read All Loeb Classical Library Books Online Without Subscription

Do you know you can read all those books over at the Loeb Classical Library online, without having to be a subscriber?

In short, free of charge.

For those who do not know:

The Loeb Classical Library website is filled with a huge collection of books.

At the time of writing this post, there are 538 books available.

They are basically classic works of ancient Greek and Latin Literature published by Harvard University Press.

Of course, this rather abstruse stuff is not for everyone; or rather for most of us.

But for those who are into this great literary works, then read on...

For a start, in fact, you can already access some of Loeb Classical Library books online via these three websites:

1. Wikisource/Loeb Classical Library

2. EDonnelly

3. Loebolus 

But these sites DO NOT have the whole complete collection of 538 books currently.

The problem is you can only access or read ONE PAGE of the book.

Then when you click to the following page, you are greeted by this message:

"You've reached the page view limit for your Loeb Classical Library preview. Please log in or subscribe to continue reading."

So, how do you continue reading, if you are not a subscriber?

Keep reading.

There is a legal and simple way to overcome this problem.

But, it is a bit bothersome, or inconvenient.

This is what you do when you come to the view-limit page.

1. You just click on "History" at the menu bar.

2. Then you move your cursor down and click on "Clear Recent History...".

7. The page which you can't access, now it appears.

8. Then if you want to continue reading the next page, you will encounter the same page-view limit remarks again.

9. Again, you have to repeat the process as shown above.

10. In short, you clear history and then reload the current page.

As I have said earlier, it's a little inconvenient.

But then you get to read all the books from the Loeb Classical Library online for free.

Happy reading.
